The coroner and scientist Dr. Warren Chapin is researching the shivering effect of fear with his assistant David Morris. Dr. Warren is introduced to Ollie Higgins, the relative of a criminal sentenced to the electric chair, while making the autopsy of the corpse, and he makes a comment about the tingler-effect to him. Ollie asks for a lift to Dr. Warner, and introduces his deaf-mute wife Martha Higgins, who manages a theater of their own. Dr. Warner returns home, where he lives with his unfaithful and evil wife Isabel Stevens Chapin and her sweet sister Lucy Stevens. Dr. Warner, upset with the situation with his wife, threatens and uses her as a subject of his experiment. When Martha dies of fear, Dr. Warner makes her autopsy and finds a creature that lives inside every human being, feeds with fear and is controlled by the scream. Once Martha was not able to scream, the tingler was not rendered harmless and became enormous. When the living being escapes, Dr. Warner and Ollie chase it in a crowded movie theater.

Subject: Some reseblances to Ridley Scott's Alien
WARNING! This review contains spoilers.
For some reason, a couple of plot elements of this movie remind me of Ridley Scott's movie "Alien". All of those things, like when they remove the "tingler" from the woman's body and it starts moving around attacking people, it all reminds me of when that creature (in "Alien") bursts out of the guy's torso and starts moving around the ship killing people.
A major difference, though, is that there's not as many people dying in "The Tingler" as there is in "Alien". In fact, only two people die in the entire movie. I still think the movie is good, and if the rating scale was 1-10 instead of 1-5 I would give it a 7. However the scale is only 1-5, so I'm giving it a 4.
Subject: Thanks Video-Cellar
Its ironic that busy body jobs worth users like video-cellar has actually made it easier to find quality non Public Domain movies on archive.org. Simply clicking on his username brings up all the videos he has been moaning about.

Subject: great , he he....
Vincent Price at his best.
Why are you such a stick in the mud? Do you think Vincent Price would care? Isn't it better people get to see this movie for free and keep Vincent alive forever in the minds and hearts of fans?
Ah well, I'm enjoying watching this. Thanks for the happy memories. I love this movie!
